‘Eternal’ The Exquisite Bridal Shoes Collection for 2016 from Bella Belle
Did you all see yesterday’s stunning Tuscany inspired Al Fresco wedding inspiration? If so, you might have glimpsed a gorgeous pair of Bella Belle Shoes, whose ethereal 2015 lookbook you may also remember if you are a long time follower of Chic Vintage Brides. I have been smitten ever since I first saw it, and today I am super excited to be sharing with you a peek at their latest offering for 2016…..
In my mind, there’s no doubt that Bella Belle Shoes are more than a little bit wonderful. Exquisitely designed, beautifully made bridal shoes created by the lovely Erina and Veronyca who understand the needs of the modern brides who will be wearing them. With a fresh approach their collections offer everything from stylish sandals and the sweetest flats, to elegant high heels. Luxurious and stylish, yet made to be affordable, comfortable, and wearable after the big day, it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know Bella Belle over the last 8 months. When Erina emailed me about sharing this their latest collection I was excited, but if I am honest confident that it could never be as lovely as the 2015 designs that first stole my heart – I couldn’t have been more wrong though! Offering something a little more timeless, but just as elegant, their ‘Eternal’ collection is every bit as breathtaking. And their lookbook shoot styled by Amore Events by Cody, with lush florals by Whimsical Floral Design, and captured perfectly by Rachel May, is if at all possible even prettier than their last. So sit back and soak up every delightful detail…..
A few words from Erina, one half of the talented duo behind Bella Belle Shoes “Our 2016 ‘Eternal’ collection focuses on craftsmanship, quality, aesthetics, and comfort. We wanted this collection to reflect our constant pursuit for romance and novelty, without being overwhelmingly over the top. When we were designing it, we knew we wanted to create a collection that is effortless and can stand the test of time. We did not want to confine our collection to one look; instead, we wanted a range of designs that would fit brides of all personalities.
The best part of the design process was gathering all components. We spent months sourcing the most delicate and perfect lace fabric for our flats, pumps and wedges. We worked with our embroidery artists to design the beading and embroidery detailing. Every member of our member put in many an hour to bring our vision for this collection to life.”
For me, it’s the little details that makes bridal shoes from Bella Belle Shoes so special. Firstly, each and every pair is handmade from start to finish in only the finest materials, and secondly Erina and Veronyca add a thoughtful touch just perfect for brides, as Erina explains: “We infuse the ‘something blue’ to our shoe lining using the softest imported leather.” – and it is the prettiest colour blue too!
As I looked through the collection, despite being already married, I admit to lusting after more than one of these designs myself! There was no end to my swooning over the lovely Paloma with its hand beaded floral embellishment, and the glamorous gold lace of Tess is just gorgeous!
Bella Belle bridal shoes are stocked in boutiques across America, you can see a full list of stockists here, or can be bought online and shipped worldwide via the store on their website. With Erina and Veronyca overseeing all phases of each shoe’s creation from the design process to production, and those all important beautiful finishing touches, you can be confident of quality and finish.
